MNF - What It Meant To The Nation

First off, that was sad to see LaVar go down. He was having his best game of the season and making an impact and now he's out for at least the rest of this season.

Secondly, I have yet to see Antonio Pierce play even a mediocre game for the Giants. There is no doubt in my mind that's the one Gregg Williams would want back above anything else. He jumps on plays before they happen and ends up making play after play on the perimeter, even as an inside backer.

Thirdly, everyone screaming for T.J. Duckett to get a carry who saw what the Jacobs kid did in short yardage last night must have taken their cries to new decibels. Portis is tied for 19th in the NFL on third-and-one conversions, Betts is tied for 36th.

Fourthly, and most importantly to the Nation, how about the Tuna going with Romo? Took guts if nothing else. The legion awaiting the start of the Jason Campbell era must be going bonkers. And for all the picks Romo Cop threw I thought the kid moved the team pretty well for coming in cold in the middle of the game. Also happened to be on the phone with a longtime NFL GM at the moment Bledsoe threw his last pick, and the first thing out of his mouth was what a crappy call that was. Tough ball to try to thread in there, but a strange pattern to have going in the red zone like that, anyway.

This Giants team is starting to remind me of the Skins team last season, and they're turning point appears to have come at Washington's expense. They got it going after the bye, have found some things that work for them and that defense is an entirely different beast the last three weeks. Now they're the ones 3-0 in the division with all the momentum, kind of like the Skins a year ago.

The players need to have a sit down with Gibbs, much like the Giants did, much like the team did last year, and work out what the eff they are going to do to win some damn games.

Question of the Day:
Does Romo's show help or hurt
Jason Campbell's chance?

Posted by: HaikuMan | October 24, 2006 1:17 PM | Report abuse

Romo Cop -- I love it. Right up there with Novashank and Archubingus.

Jacobs -- watching Jacobs pound through the line made me think of Duckett, but is there a reason to think Sellers couldn't do the same?

LaVar -- it's sad to think one of the highest points in his career came on the same field (knocking out Aikman) that his career may have ended on. I hope he finds a way back into the league.

im one of the few who dont believe brunell is to blame for all our troubles. but i will say you have to play cambell cause nothing else is going right this season. might as well give the kid some reps. prep for next year.

Romo will not be that great either; once the tuna leaves dallas, this guy wont do squat. He's just a tuna guy and Bill plays his guys. But it was a ballzy call to yank him. Romo will have his moments (most probably in 2 weeks against us) but he wont win them a super bowl.

You are right on Jason. The Giants look like the team to beat in the NFC East. I see them finishing no worse than 10-6 or 11-5. Watching Bledsoe play against the Giants reminded me too much of Brunell. They are virtually the same quarterback. Both of them are past their prime, lack mobility, and are primarily in there because of their ability to manage an offense. The difference between gibbs and the tuna is that the tuna has a much shorter leash on his QB. Don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I don't think the cowboys would have won that game with either QB in there, but at least Romo got some valuable real game experience, which could be very valuable to him and the team down teh stretch. None of our backup QB's have taken a snap in a real game, and it doesn't look like they ever will unless Brunell gets injured. Gibbs even sticks with brunell when he's banged up and obviously not 100%, which makes me wonder a bit. If he really thinks Brunell is better at 90% than Collins and Campbell at 100%, then we have serious problems at the most important offensive position of all.

There was an old QB named Bledsoe
Who never ceased to have his head so
Far up his butt
You knew he'd get cut
He's thrown his last pick, Tuna said so

Hey Jason, Cowboy fan here, but I follow this blog because I like your style and the comments are funny (for Skins fans, anyway). Just wanted to chime in and say I'd rather go 2-8 with Romo than 5-5 with Drew the rest of the way. I hope Gibbs sees the light and it'll be Campbell vs. Romo next week.

What/Who is most to blame for the 2-5 Start?
Offense
Defense
Coaching
Penalties
Schedule

uh...what about front office, GM or lack there of or off seasson moves...

i mean snider isnt all bad...i like a guy that was born a skins fan and is willing to open up the pocket book to make a difference...only problem is their approach sucks...

they need to stop letting proven talent, that is part of team continuity and chemistry go because they dont want to pay them...only to turn around and trade draft picks and over pay free agenst that arent proven on a hunch or hope for potential basis...

if they'd just stop letting the right pieces go and just plug holes with free agency etc. we'd be super bowl bound by now...

JLC, good to have you back.

I too hated to see Lavar go down. I really didn't want that for him. Good luck, Lavar. I wish you a speedy recovery.

With the talk of momentum, I thought the Lavar injury knocked the wind out of the Giants. I thought the game was done after that. And then the Cowgirls O-line brought the Giants back into it by stinking up the joint.

2 questions:

1) Does anyone (other then the scrub dressed in sweats) want to talk to TO on the sidelines? Everyone who I saw him jawwing at (Bledsoe, Witten, Glenn, the coach who is paid to get jawwed at by him, etc.) all nodded their heads patronizingly and walked away.

2) Did anyone else catch the close up of TO on the bench where he was sort of staring at the ground smiling, but his face was all wrinkled up like he saw a Poltergeist between his cleats and couldn't turn away? ESPN held the shot for 10 or 15 seconds. It was really weird and awkward... but ultimately hilarious.

Dana,

Bama:

A person who has one or more of the following qualities:
1) Has 3 or more colors in their hair
2) Wears T-shirts like dresses
3) Wears all their money in their mouth
4) Has earrings that spell out their ghetto name
5) Anybody who wears socks with sandals.

Ex: Look at that bama over there with the high topped fade.



1) (n) Person who cannot dress, a loser. Short for Alabama, meaning a person from the country, backwards unsophisticated.)


Chooch

The term is derived from the Italian word "ciuccio" and means jacka$s, dummy, idiot, or moron. A chooch is a person, who against better judgement, acts inappropriately.

According to Urbandictionary.com

Posted by: CO Skins Fan | October 24, 2006 1:53 PM | Report abuse

JLaC, I beg to differ about the Giants being like last year's Skins -- I think the NFL proves year after year that it's the team that hits its stride in December, not October, that is successful. The Giants are certainly peaking, but I don't see them maintaining this run through the end of the season. Philly's going to win the division, and it pains me to say that.

As for the Question of the Day, it definitely hurts J Campbell. The most obvious of Joe's coaching preferences is that he can't stand INTs. That why he sticks with Brunell, who prefers 3 yard dumps (pun intended) on 3rd and 8 to throwing it past the sticks and possibly gettting picked off. Joe loves the field position game. He could care less about the 200+ yards Romo put up -- all he saw were 3 INTs.

And finally, I agree that Brunell and Bledsoe are mostly the same quarterback at this point, but there is one big difference -- Bledsoe will still throw it deep, and he still has the arm to do it. I actually would prefer him to Brunell at this poitn (at least he'd look further than 8 yards down field).

Posted by: NFC Least | October 24, 2006 1:55 PM | Report abuse

Dana,

Most of that is from Urbandictionary.com. I had to modify it heavily for public consumption.

It's a term that originates in this area and you'd have had to go to HS in this area during the 90's to pick this one up.

The two ways I'd describe it is how it was put in the prior post regarding the way someone dresses.

Ex: NO that bama is not reppin' a Triple Fat Goose Jacket in 2006.

Or

As a loser, troublemaker, waste of life. Someone full of Shabingus.

Ex: Did that bama Vinnie really just pay Archabingus the highest salary for any safety?

Y'all went and started another blog while I was crunching stats!

Well, it took more than a sec, but it was well worth it. NFC East QB stats excluding 4th quarter and overtime. Things to note:

1) McNabb is WAY WAY better than anybody else through three quarters.

2) Brunell's yds-per-catch and yds-per-att averages both dropped, which is mud in the eye of Saunders, who bragged on the high yds-per-att average earlier. (Not when it counts big guy!)

3) Brunell is still the best in INT's and completion %.

4) Manning's numbers were much worse, suggesting that he has been having big fourth quarters this year.

1st Three Quarters

Passing yards:
McNabb: 1797 (through 7)
Manning: 983 (through 6)
Brunell: 975 (through 7)
Bledsoe: 891 (through 6)

yards per completion:
McNabb: 15.1
Manning: 12.4
Bledsoe: 12.4
Brunell: 10.95, rounded to 11 to be charitable

yards per attempt:
McNabb: 8.9
Manning: 7.2
Brunell: 7.0
Bledsoe: 6.7

TD's:
McNabb: 13 (through 7)
Manning: 7 (through 6)
Bledsoe: 5 (through 6)
Brunell: 4 (through 7)

INT's:
Brunell: 2 (through 7)
Bledsoe: 4 (through 6)
McNabb: 5 (through 7)
Manning: 6 (through 6)

Completion %
Brunell: 63.5
McNabb: 58.9
Manning: 58.1
Bledsoe: 54.1

Some of the stats, such as rating, sacks, rushes, etc. were going to take longer to pull out, so I gave up. Here's mud in your eye, Al Saunders!

Don't think Webster can help you with Bama and Cooch though. Help Dana C. out brother.

Here are some stats to consider, as we all know that Brunell's infalted QB rating is largely a function of his receivers over achieving after the catch and that he throws a large portion of short yardage easy passes:

I wanted to compare statistically how many yards a player has in relation to how many Yards After the Catch they pick up from their receivers. Below please find the Quarterback with his Total Passing Yards - Yards After Catch = Total Yards Ball Passed in the Air on Completions.

Donovan McNabb 2162 - 966 = 1196
Jon Kitna 1853 - 926 = 927
Peyton Manning 1620 - 480 = 1140
Marc Bulger 1619 - 717 = 902
Jake Delhomme 1581 - 560 = 1021
Eli Manning 1518 - 463 = 1055
Drew Brees 1509 - 809 = 700
Brett Favre 1511 - 745 = 766
Mark Brunell 1465 - 864 = 601
Chad Pennington 1450 - 620 = 830
Carson Palmer 1418 - 470 = 948
Rex Grossman 1387 - 514 = 873
Phillip Rivers 1330 - 497 = 833
JP Losman 1314 - 601 = 713
Brad Johnson 1299 - 560 = 739
Alex Smith 1285 - 703 = 582
Matt Hassleback 1249 - 406 = 843
Tom Brady 1226 - 527 = 699
David Carr 1217 - 614 = 603
Charlie Frye 1188 - 625 = 563
Drew Bledsoe 1164 - 444 = 720

What jumps out: Mark Brunell has fewer yards passed in the air than anyone on this list besides Alex Smith and Charlie Frye. Even among them, Brunell has a higher PERCENTAGE of his yards coming from YACs at nearly 60%. No one else on this list is even close; Frye and Smith have 53% and 55% of their passing yards after the catch respectively.

He cannot throw deep, or refuses to try. This allows opposing defenses to stack our line and dare him to beat them deep, which they know he won't do. It hurts the entire offense, especially on crucial 3rd and longs as it shrinks the available field to pass to (because once a receiver gets past 20 yards there is an incredibly low probability that he will successfuly thrown to).

Gimme gimme gimme Jason Campbell.

Posted by: Skin Patrol | October 24, 2006 2:10 PM | Report abuse

Parcells decision seemed rash. You take out an average but known quantity while down only 5 points, for an horrible pass that should not have been thrown (becuase Marion Barber was just itching to run in the TD for my fantasy team). Then replace him with an unknown quantity in a game that has NFC East lead in the balance?

That decision makes me see why Gibbs has refused to let Campbell play up to this point.

I am more offended by Gibbs constant lying, ahem, marketing his sucky team than his stubborn decisions. We are not blind.

Simply say that JC isnt ready and that Mark, though flawed, gives us the best shot to win. Forget that crap about Mark making any damn throw on the field. That is COMPLETE BS.

Simply say that you dont like Patrick Ramsey, dont call him the starter, let him play a qtr and yank him.

Dont call Pierce and Smoot "core redskins" and then let them walk.

YEAH JACK KENT COOKE! Drop that knowledge, SON!

My sentiments exactly on Parcells. Stupid. Idiot. Romo graduated from the Bram Weinstein School of Bamafication. What a chuch. I bet he regretted it after that first snap. "Oh, sorry about that INT I threw right after you put me in the game coach...and the two others I threw."

I love it when MNF cuts to the Tuna with the 2000 Al Gore Second Debate Face on. And he's wearing that dumb Cowboys sweater.

Parcells is a mercenary and a bad person. Gibbs will get in your eye piece but not like that. He tells you in his office. Parcells is such a grandstander he wants to do it on TV.

Jason, the Parcells decision was a dumb football decision and now what do the Cowboys do? Who do they turn to? Drew Henson? Drew Bledsoe? Larry Drew? Anyone named Drew is a BF.

A known quantity indeed. It's well known Bledsoe will provide a glimmer of false hope and then shatter it with an idiotic pass. It wasn't known that Romo would do it too. Hopefully Romo won't do it forever like we know Bledsoe will. That'd be sort of like hoping Brunell's arm gets stronger.

Dana, Skinz pretty much covered it but I think I can add a little. You can also glean an awful lot from the context you know?

bama: very broad definition here. You know one when you see one. It can be the dude that quotes hip hop lyrics when discussing his skill set, the dude with that line facial hair from 'burn to 'burn with sweats on, the guy that no one likes but still makes it to the parties, the dude that always incorporates the latest pop culture trend into his actions/lexicon, the dude who spends more money putting a racing stripe of some sort on his ride than he has spent on his education...

As you can see, there is no hard and fast definition. You could basically go to the parking lot at that sh*tbox texas stadium, close your eyes, spin around and whoever you are facing, would be an astonishing bama.

Chooch: this one is a little easier. This is a guy who is cheesy, a little too over the top. It is the guy who is wearing a blazer at a dive bar drinking something pink talking about what some guy did at work, it is the dude who is always the drunkest at the party that makes everyone irritated (aka the dude you hate to see on your evite because he responds like this: "bringing 39 people and 4 midgets made of ice cream and will be there with bells on with rainbows and sprinkles lolololol"), the guy who always gets in fights when it is not time to fight, or, just a plumber showing too much when he inspects the pipe. Say it once: 'that dude is such a chooch'. See how it rolls off?

You can picture it can't you?

Both, are filled to the brim with various types of 'bingus...

JLC - You're right about the "The legion awaiting the start of the Jason Campbell era must be going bonkers" with Parcell switching to Romo. Unfortunately with his first toss an int followed by two more later in the game I serioulsy doubt Gibbs was persuaded to follow suit.

It sure sucks watching A. Pierce in a Giants uni. Horrible move letting him go.

Just kidding guys. For a second there, did you think it was Boofer? I tried to use a complete lack of grammar and punctuation and throw in a few choice nuggets like "boo hoo box" to throw you guys off. A few comments on Bledsoe being like Brunell--the biggest difference to me is that Bledsoe has loads of time in the pocket. I've seen him hold the ball for 8 seconds before taking a sack. Generally, when Brunell gets a sack, it's because Samuels or Jansen has been blown off the line by a speed rusher--it's not their fault--I mean, when you practice against Andre Carter, you're gonna get kinda soft.

Anyway, Boofer, we miss you. Come out and play!!!!

I couldn't agree more. We have let some critical pieces of the 04 and 05 defenses go... and not all were starters. See Walt Harris, Ryan Clark, Stoutmire, etc.

I think what upsets me the most is that we call some of these guys, like Pierce and Smoot, "core Redskins", only to let them go somewhere else because we can't afford them... then the following season we sign two dopes with absolutely no ties to the Redskins for 30 million each.

It's a sick, disgusting cycle. Now I wish I would have yelled louder at Vinny and Danny in Indy.

This redskins team obviously needs some kind of spark - and changing schemes and such, as Joe Gibbs says is not the spark we're looking for. We need to see some youth on the field, some energy, some life, some excitement, some JASON CAMPBELL!! Brunell is slow, lathargic, boring, old, and pathetic. He pretty much sucks the life out of anybody he comes in contact with (exactly why Gibbs had to go to the hospital when he met with him). He's sucked the life out of the offensive line - they don't even have the energy to pick him up after a sack. A 35 year old just doesn't have the energy to fire anybody up, including himself.... GIVE US SOME EXCITEMENT FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON!! I'M BEGGING YOU GIBBS. IF I HAVE TO WATCH ANOTHER MOMENT OF BRUNELL FLINCHING IN PAIN AS HE LOFTS DEAD DUCKS 15 YARDS DOWN THE FIELD, I'M PROBABLY GOING TO SHOOT MYSELF. GIVE THIS TEAM SOME JASON "CPR" CAMPBELL!! GIBBS IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SEND A MESSAGE AND LIGHT A FIRE, REPLACE THE AGING QB!! THE HEART HAS STOPPED BEATING AND TINKERING WITH YOUR SCHEMES ISN'T GOING TO BRING EM BACK.

I don't understand why GWilliams would develop a player like A. Pierce into his prototype middle linebacker, and signal caller on the field, only to let him go a season later to the Giants? That would be like Al Saunders developing J. Campbell into a great productive QB and then letting him go to the Cowboys. Doesn't make sense.

I think the really, really , really sad thing is that, as classy as Skins fans generally are, if #8 went down with an injury (especially if he wasn't playing well but the game was close), the home crowd would go NUTS -- even if Todd Collins came trotting on. And then if Collins got hurt -- INSANITY. Each person there would feel individually bad about essentially cheering a guy getting hurt, but would immediately self-rationalize and think "oh no, I was cheering for the guy coming in, not BenchMark getting hurt!" But collectively....it would sound exactly like that. And that's sad when it gets to the piont where you know that's what would happen....I think we should switch QBs, yes, but think it would be very, very sad if Brunell ends up in that situation.

Why would someone alienate their most talented and popular player?

Why would someone refer to themself in the third person?

The answer is that at that level people start reading how they are Genius'. They begin to believe their own press. They start to think that they could get a bunch of 12 year olds to play in their system and it wouldn't matter.

Grilliams believed that Peirce was a product of his system. I'm sure he wanted to keep him but he is pompous and wanted to prove to everyone he didn't need anyone.

As soon as he is fired, bring in Denny Green. Denny almost had the job before Gibbs came back. We need a fire breathing asskicker, not some pouty broken record. A coach, who will rip a holes open and grab their larynx. QB not delivering--f him..going to the kid. What has Denny Green done? Only recognize, assemble, and retain talent....everywhere he has gone. How? Big shock...the draft. Sure, Arizona is perpetually stuck in the top 15 of the draft every year, but look at his acquistions...Larry Fitzgerald, Antrel Rolle, Bertrand Berry, Karlos Dansby, Darnell Dockett, Matt Leinhart, Neil Rackers, how about Minnesota....Randy Moss, Daunte Culpepper, Chester Taylor, Robert Smith, Byrant McKinnie. My point is the guy knows talent and football i.q. when HE sees it. He lacks an o-line in Phoenix, which is sad, given all the other pieces in place. With Denny Green, we would have been straight.

Unfortunately, and unless the cap goes up by 10 million per season AND we continue to beg players to restructure their contracts, I think we're going to see a lot more "core" Redskins end up in other cities.

Example, Chris Cooley. Dude makes like 700k right now. We pay Arch and A. Carter and B. Lloyd 90 million combined. So at the end of his contract year, who wants to bet that we let him walk to the Cowboys only for us to lure Mark Bavaro out of retirement for 327 billion dollars the next season.

You know, guys like Cooley are we it's absolutely necessary to keep your draft picks. These guys get slated into rookie deals for 4-5 years. If they're busts, so what? That's 4 million and a 3rd rounder. Now AA or A. Carter? If those guys are busts, you're stuck with them no matter how bad they suck. It's either that or release him to the tune of DEAD CAP MONEY, which we love.

But we never have draft picks. And even when we do, we trade them to the Niners for B. Lloyd, then sign him to 30 mill for 11 catches through 7...

I have never, ever seen a more reckless moves in professional sports. Maybe on the Yankees, but they aren't governed under a salary cap.

If Gibbs is afraid of interceptions, and that's what's keeping him from putting in either Campbell or Collins, he better get over it. Heck, even Peyton Manning throws picks now and then. Quarterbacks aren't houseplants - sitting on the bench will NOT make Campbell ready for the big time. Practice with the first team and play time in game will. Sooner or later Gibbs will have to try him out, or Campbell will ask to be traded at the end of his rookie contract, and there goes your supposed future. Brunell plays not to lose. He may not throw a lot of picks, but then again, he doesn't take chances either. The problem with playing not to lose is, when the other team is playing to WIN, you lose! It's not enough to be safe. Throwing a bomb downfield is almost never safe. But as Doug Flutie can tell you, sometimes you throw a bomb and hope for the best, and great things happen. As long as the Redskins insist on playing it safe on offense, we are going to continue to see this season slip away. At this point, I'd rather see us try something wild and risky and take a chance at greatness - even if we lose - then to play it safe and timid and practically guarantee that we lose.

Hi Guys:

I don't know about yall, but I was one of the fans outside Redskins Park sending them off on Friday. I have to tell you, I was absolutely crushed when I saw the team bus roll by without stopping. I saw Gibbs inside; we briefly made eye contact through the glass but he looked right through me, as if I was a Magic Eye puzzle and he was trying to find the donkey. Anyways, I was crying non-stop until I saw the post game conference, and heard Riggins' radio show, and the few other times he's mentioned it as well. I mean, as fans, wins and losses are important, but I doubt any of us would say anything trumps having the bus stop on the way out of the practice facility. I don't think I've ever been hurt that bad before in my life. And yet, deep down in my heart, I knew Joe Gibbs would do the right thing...and he did.

From the plate to the mound,
Could Brunell throw it down
Or must even that long ball he ditch?

Ok, I'm going to go there -- to use this blog as a vehicle for social advancement. And all this just after reading the post about the animals the other day that led me to believe I would never use this as a soapbox....even though I agree.

So, if charitable causes are not your interest -- save your time and skip this post.

Tonight, my 9 year old son came to me and told me about a website that he saw on a channel he sometimes watches on satellite that has "approved" programming as dictated by his Mom and I and involves cartoons.

This cartoon, in a commercial, was touting UNICEF's Trick Or Treat for UNICEF program "kids helping kids". Since I have two under the age of 10, I thought I might share the website link with any of you who may be in the same boat as I am.

So, we go through the website which is designed to appeal to kids. The site talks about getting the orange UNICEF boxes to trick or treat with from a local store (in our case Pier 1, but searchable by zip code) and then the bomb drops: "Dad, I want to trick or treat for money for UNICEF, I don't want to trick or treat for candy this year."

He's always been a good kid, but he took it to a new level tonight.

So, for those of you who are interested and may have kids, check it out:

http://www.unicefusa.org/site/c.duLRI8O0H/b.25933/k.8DDD/US_Fund_for_UNICEF__US_Fund_for_UNICEF.htm

And for those of you who are not -- all is good. I will be back on my normal wavelength tomorrow morning West Coast time.

I heard on Riggo's radio show last night that BLloyd was talking about our own QB controversy. When asked if JC should be the guy, he said that with Jason's understanding of the new system . . . it would be unfair to [JC] to start him. Riggo thought that was pretty telling. The coaches are saying we love him, but it's not time. Now the players are saying the same thing.

Perhaps it's just the chooch in me (AMTTS, did I use that correctly?), but I think the O-Line needs to tighten up and allow Brunnell and Portis to do their thing. I think I'm on the Brunnell bandwagon -- until at least the players thinks he's ready.

Dana C let's take into Brunell playing ability. Not just this year but last year as well.

1. No mobility
2. Not able to get the ball down field on a consistent bases.
3.Not able to make a play when we need him too.
4. Not able to convert 3rd down.

Come on, JM. No need for name-calling. She makes a point, although a misguided one at that.

It's stunning to me that the players don't have faith in Jay-C and continue to rally around Old Man Checkdown. The guy doesn't even bother to look at the WRs. He looks for Betts or throws it away 99.9% of the time.

Then again, there's a such thing as toeing the party line. Lloyd throwing Brunell under the bus would likely blow up in his face. Until Gibbs makes the decision, players have to say the right thing.

Grilliams getting the upperhand on Buges, slapping him with open hands, then back hands and repeatedly while yelling, "get those losers blocking" "Overpaid crybabies Samuels and Jansen, beleiving their own press clippings, missing blocks, never unloading on anyone....You Chooch!"...Next up Gibbs and Saunders arm-wrestle for playcalling control...that is what had better be goin on in the Ahsburn bunker...something like that...something to get these slackers fired up.

Alright, I'll just pitch in again. Essay time, again. BenchMark might be an effective quarterback, but his glaring fault is his inability or unwillingness to acknowledge his age, and the problems that come from it.

He thinks and plays like a mobile scrambler QB, but doesn't have the physical capacity for it. When he runs, he more often runs into trouble than he does out of it, leaving us strung on a string with 3rd and scary with only a screen pass or a checkdown.

It's easy to say 'tighten up the O-line', but when your QB is continually opening up his area of vulnerabilty, making it easier for passrushers to run straight ahead at full steam rather than have to fight against and into blocking, what can you really do? Tighten up the shoelaces, maybe? You can wave the 'zone blocking' thingy around all you want, but until our O-line grows eyes in the back of their heads, they can't reliably set and block when they don't know where the QB is going. They're not getting help from the guy they're trying to help.

I was hoping that BenchMark would figure out what an advantage keeping in the pocket would be, after how he did in the TexMex Salsa and Jax games. I was hoping he'd figure out that when you keep in the pocket, you can throw deeper, you can see everyone on the field, and that by getting it out of your hands quicker, you protect yourself and get the ball to all that cap-killing talent that you have moving downfield. But he has not. I lost faith in that hope in the Giants game. I've seen no hope of him changing, since.

That's why I'm with the folks that want to see him benched. If he believes he's still a run'-n-gun QB, that's fine. Just let him believe it when he's not harming the team along with it.

Dana: These words are here to help, not to restrict. The key to using the words is the feeling. You should be kind of disgusted when you call someone a chooch. So right there, I wouldn't have used it because I think you're just plain adorable. There it is. It's out there. Little inquisitive Dana just wants to know things. "Please pass the knowledge". It's all about swagger and attitude. If you feel like Grilliams is acting like a bama or just want to vent, then you call that man a bama and we'll all nod our heads.

Lisa: fear not, my folks are from AL as well. Its colloqial and I know I didn't spell collooqial correctly. I'm not a bama and neither are you.

Try not to narrowly tailor the definitions guys. These are broad strokes of disdain that we are cropdusting the universe with.

No offense taken (or given by the O-line this year for that matter). Yeah, I know, that was bad.

Unless we can go out this week and find a starting QB who can learn this God-Forsaken system in a few days, Brunell gets my support (and it does pain me to admit in public).

Well - I am a professor of chemistry wanted to teach my 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so I produced an experiment that involved a
glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms. "Now, class, closely
observe the worms," I said while putting a worm into the
water.

The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.
He then put the second worm into the whiskey. It curled up and writhed
about painfully, then quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail.

"Now, what lesson can we learn from this experiment?" I
asked.

Little Johnny, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely,
responded confidently, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."

Quick question... What kind of guy is Jason Cambell? I mean really, all I know about him is that he hasn't done much complaining, does well at carrying a clipboard (should be Archubingus's job) and doesn't really say much of anything. Does he have any interesting things going on besides being a 3rd string young and not ready QB. Blah. As long as he's not B-slapping valet parkers outside of clubs, he'll stay DC's favorite QB.

A vacationing penguin is driving through Arizona when he notices that the oil-pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.

After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands, he makes a real mess trying to eat with his little flippers.

After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says, "It looks like you blew a seal."

"No, no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."

A bear and a rabbit are pooping in the woods.

The bear turns to the rabbit and asks, "Excuse me, but do you have problems with poop sticking to your fur?"

"Why no, I don't," said the rabbit.

So the bear wiped his butt with the rabbit.

PS -- Replace "poop" with "sh.." and "butt" with "a.." and it's even funnier when spoken aloud.

I can't believe I'm not only condoning, but participating.

An Irishman, a Mexican and a redneck were doing construction work on the scaffolding of a tall building. They were eating lunch. The Irishman said, "Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building."

The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time, I'm going to jump off too." The redneck opened his lunch and said, "Bologna again. If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too."

Next day the Irishman opens his lunch box, sees corned beef and cabbage and jumps to his death. The Mexican opens his lunch, sees a burrito and jumps too. The redneck opens his lunch, sees the bologna and jumps to his death as well.

At the funeral, the Irishman's wife is weeping. She says, "I I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!" The Mexican's wife also weeps and says, "I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much."

Everyone turned and stared at the redneck's wife. "Hey, don't look at me," she said. "He makes his own lunch."

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term exam. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

Here is the "Bonus Question" on the exam: Is Hell exothermic (gives
off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's
Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or
some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we
need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate
at which they are leaving.

I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell,
it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many
souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different Religions that
exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their
religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these
religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we
can project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of
souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of
change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for
the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of
Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibi lities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase
until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls
in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes
over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa (a girlfriend of
mine during my Freshman year) that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before
I sleep with you", and take into account the fact that I slept with her
last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell
is exothermic and has already frozen over.

The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it
follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore,
extinct... leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a
divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh
my God."

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A."

-I would imagine that if you could understand Morse code, a tap dancer would drive you crazy.
-I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
-I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one. So I got a cake.
-I think foosball is a combination of soccer and shish kabobs.
-I remixed a remix, it was back to normal.
-I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with four or more people.
-I bought myself a parrot. The parrot talked. But it did not say, "I'm hungry,"... so it died.
-Dogs are forever in the push up postion.
-Chicago is known as the Windy City, and Montana is called the Big Sky State, so I think that we should somehow combine the two to create the ultimate kite-flying experience.
-A waffle is like a pancake with syrup traps. It says to the syrup "You ain't goin' anywhere!"
-A severed foot is the ultimate stocking stuffer.
-The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how good I get, I'll never be as good as a wall.

Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this?

Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:

1. Teaching Math In 1950

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

2. Teaching Math In 1960

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

3. Teaching Math In 1970

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

4. Teaching Math In 1980

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number 20.

5. Teaching Math In 1990

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers. )

6. Teaching Math In 2006

Un hachero vende una carretada de maderapara $100. El costo de la producciones es $80.
